The wind of change - cybersecurity regulations receive a boost with the proposed NIS 2 Directive

Cybersecurity needs are constantly evolving and the regulations in this area always seem to play catch-up. This is also reflected in: • the avalanche of internal norms adopted for the implementation of the first Directive on security of network and information systems (the 2016 NIS 1 Directive); but also in • the announced proposal to replace NIS 1 with NIS 2 - a new directive on measures for a high common level of cybersecurity across the European Union. Matching the reality of cybersecurity with the regulatory requirements in this field may be challenging and requires constant communication within organizations, not only at the IT and security level, but at management and operation levels as well.
